Things Ain't What They Used to Be
Things Ain't What They Used to Be | Philip Glenister
2 posts
Were the 70s and 80s all they were cracked up to be? Or have we never had it so good? Philip Glenister - one of our best-loved actors - takes a swig of Babycham, jumps on his space hopper, and heads off down memory lane to find out. Which Bond was better - Roger Moore or Daniel Craig? Was life better when we were served lashings of gravy, instead of a 'drizzle of jus'? And - most important of all - have Curly Wurlys really got smaller, or have we all just got bigger? Philip Glenister's Things Ain't What They Used to Be is a hilarious and affectionate look at the good, the bad and the ugly from three very different decades, that will have you laughing (and cringing) with recognition. If you're going on a nostalgia trip, you couldn't ask for a better guide.

"Yesterday / All my troubles seemed so far away..."
This was the first book to pop into my head when I thought of that first line.

I had a lot of fun with this challenge! ?

Anton I'm rewatching series 3 of Ashes To Ashes as we speak! 1y
rabbitprincess @Anton I haven't seen Ashes to Ashes yet! I loved Life on Mars though. 1y
Anton As much as I love Life On Mars, I like Ashes To Ashes a bit more. I definitely recommend it, it's less a sequel and more one story told over 5 seasons. 1y
rabbitprincess @Anton It sounds great! Will definitely have to check it out. 1y

Wasn't expecting to stumble across this at one of my local used bookstores! Now I need to rewatch Life on Mars 😉
